A frequently observed skin condition at the clinic, melasma is distinguished by dark grey/brown patches on the skin, which typically manifest symmetrically on the cheeks, nose, forehead, upper lip, and jawline.

This condition primarily impacts women, and is often associated with pregnancy, however, it can affect women of all ages. 


The exact cause is unknown but is thought to be the result of an over-production of pigment-producing cells in the skin. 


There is no cure for Melasma at the moment, and it can go away by itself, especially after pregnancy, but there are several treatment options that can reduce its appearance. Some creams can help lighten the skin. Topical steroids may also be suggested for more severe cases.


ProXN xanthohumol therapy is 30 times stronger than vitamin C and is an exceptionally potent antioxidant that is effective against recurrent melasma. Dr Mittal will discuss your treatment options during your consultation

After care

After applying the recommended cream to the affected areas, you can immediately return to daily activities. Therapies with xanthohumol do not cause adverse skin reactions such as peeling or selling and soreness.


A series of 4-6 treatments may be necessary, every two weeks.
